Thankful Thursday

Today we are grateful for our hard-working garden volunteers. Can you believe they’ve grown and harvested 258 pounds of produce already this summer? We love having fresh vegetables to share with our clients!

Thankful Thursday

Our hallway and cooler are full! We are so thankful for the HACAP Food Reservoir. Where else can you get over 1000 pounds of food for less than $100? Thanks to everyone who donates financially to our food pantry. We stretch your dollars farther than you can imagine!
